Something really fishy, as usual, is going on in the oil industry. And again it's regarding the Gulf. Several newspapers recently announced that BP was being given permission to restart drilling and would even start new wells in the explosive Macondo region where the last catastrophe was precipitated. Yes, insane corporate greed at the least. The very least. On April 4th it was reported: Oil giant BP plans to restart deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico this summer just a year after the Deepwater Horizon explosion that sparked the worst oil spill in history. The group hopes to start work on 10 wells in the Gulf after being granted permission by US regulators to continue work halted at the time of the drilling moratorium imposed after the spill. The move is likely to fuel public anger, coming just a year after the devastating oil spill, which happened when a BP well exploded, killing 11 workers and causing an environmental crisis. Source
